A Photoblog of My Orlando Trip

Between the ridiculous delays getting to Orlando, the sweltering humidity, and hiccups like incorrect alarm clocks, Florida did not leave any favorable impressions on me.  Memphis was magical and exactly the kind of getaway that I needed - Orlando just zapped my energy and patience.

The trade show itself went well and I gathered a lot of ideas and contacts for the magazine. Since I don't have anything nice to say about Florida otherwise, here are some pretty pictures of my travels.

The view from above the clouds never ceases to be beautiful

A very large cloud formation - probably a good storm brewing!

Reminds me of Disney's version of Mount Olympus from "Hercules"

A view like this still doesn't convince to ever go parachuting

One of the few moments it wasn't raining while I was there

One of the convention hall entrances - this place was massive!

On the tradeshow floor

The hotel I stayed at

You've probably seen pictures of this whimsical building before

I passed it walking to the convention center - it's basically a fun house

Nothing says the tropics like a big flower with fresh raindrops

Isn't this cool?!  A second later we passed a cloud and I would have missed this shot


  1. Lovely photos. I'm sorry you didn't have more fun. :(

  2. Thanks! I try to view the positive in every situation - Florida wasn't horrific but it certainly wasn't a vacation. Oh well, maybe I'll have an excuse to go back one day and have a better experience.
